Many Kindergarten through 12th grade (K-12) tribal schools across the nation do not have good ventilation. This is a longstanding problem with demonstrably negative effects on student learning. We can and should act to fix this to ensure good indoor air quality for all students, educators, and school staff in our tribal schools. During the COVID-19 pandemic, it is even more important that ventilation problems in tribal K-12 schools be addressed now. Along with other mitigation measures, improvements in ventilation in tribal K-12 schools can decrease the risk of SARS-CoV-2 spread.
Presented by Paula Olsiewski, John Hopkins Center for Health Security, John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, a pioneering leader in policy and scientific research programs in the microbiology and chemistry of indoor environments.
Moderated by Mansel A Nelson, Institute for Tribal Environmental Professionals, Northern Arizona University, Program Manager for Indoor Air Quality in Tribal Communities (IAQTC).
The webinar will review the findings of a recent report that considers the impact of COVID-19 pandemic on children, families, and educators and summarizes current ventilation guidelines.
